Toothless Obama admin immigration enforcement: 100s janitors fired, not deported (+how many SEIU members are illegal aliens?) - 11/09/09

In Minneapolis, Minnesota earlier this year, the Department of Homeland Security sent no match letters or a variant to around 1200 janitors employed by the major corporation ABM informing those employees that there was a mismatch between their Social Security numbers and other information. They were required to provide documentation by October, and when all or almost all didn't, ABM fired them; presumably all or virtually all are illegal aliens (link). However, rather than trying to deport them, DHS simply concentrated on the company. Needless to say, that makes it easy for a fired illegal...

DHS scraps "no match" program, e-Verify still operational - 10/08/09

From this: The Obama administration has repealed a rule that would have threatened employers with prosecution unless they fired workers whose Social Security numbers did not match entries in a government database, ending a two-year battle in a San Francisco federal court. Although the Department of Homeland Security formally withdrew the "no-match" rule Wednesday, the administration is supporting another program (EVerify) enabling employers to check workers' names against electronic records that are supposed to screen out illegal immigrants. See the no match summary for the backstory; groups...

The US Chamber of Commerce spent almost $10 million on lobbying in the first quarter of 2009 for all issues combined. The Associated Press enumerates the issues here: The government's $700 billion financial rescue package and Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, were among the high-profile issues the Chamber lobbied on during the first quarter...

Is the ACLU's official policy to just enforce labor laws (with little or no immigration enforcement)? - 04/03/09

Back on November 28, 2007, Lucas Guttentag - "national director of the Immigrants' Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation" [1] - conducted an interview with the leftwing "Uprising Radio" program [2].

ACLU controlling Obama policy? ("Transition Recommendations" wants most immigration enforcement halted, + much more) - 03/17/09

In November, the American Civil Liberties Union released "Actions For Restoring America: Transition Recommendations for President‐Elect Barack Obama" ( listing things they wanted him to do the first day, within the first 100 days, and within the first year. Several of their proposals would halt immigration enforcement to a great extent, pending "review".

District Judge Charles Breyer blocks DHS no-match letters (ACLU, CofC, AFL-CIO) - 10/10/07

Spencer Hsu of the Washington Post offers "Judge Bars Bush Crackdown on Illegal Workers" (link): A federal judge barred the Bush administration today from launching a planned crackdown on U.S. firms that hire illegal immigrants, warning of the plan's potentially "staggering" impact on law-abiding workers and companies. Issuing a firm rebuke of the White House, U.S. District Judge Charles R. Breyer of San Francisco granted a preliminary injunction against the government's plan to pressure employers to fire up to 8.7 million workers with suspect Social Security numbers starting this fall...

Judge Maxine Chesney blocks no-match (ACLU, AFL-CIO) - 09/01/07

Spencer S. Hsu of the Washington Post offers the falsely titled "Immigrant Crackdown Halted": A federal judge yesterday barred the Bush administration from launching a crackdown Tuesday on U.S. employers who hire illegal immigrants while she considers a lawsuit by the AFL-CIO that charges that the plan will harm citizens and other legal workers. The ruling, issued by U.S. District Judge Maxine M. Chesney in San Francisco, prohibits the Department of Homeland Security from starting to mail notices to 140,000 employers about suspect Social Security numbers. The "no- match" letters warn of...

Feinstein, Reid, growers to push AgJobs amnesty (yes, again) - 08/23/07

Senator Dianne Feinstein apparently gave a speech today where she promised to bring back the AgJobs farmworkers amnesty scheme, which would cover at least 1.5 current illegal aliens. Harry Reid already promised to bring it back, perhaps attached to some other bill such as the Farm Bill. Step one in the plan for passage calls for farmers and their allies to emphasize anew the dangers of losing an agricultural work force. They've been working on that for a while, with sympathetic "news" sources promoting "crops rotting in the fields" articles. "Agriculture is going to push this thing,"...

Bush admin scam: Social Security "no match" letters will have little effect ("tough" new DHS policy) - 08/17/07

This has to be read in its entirety to be believed. The Bush administration can't even keep a scam going for a few days. Days after unveiling a major crackdown on businesses that hire illegal immigrants, the Bush administration is now quietly admitting that its most heavily touted weapon in pursuing employers will be virtually useless. ...But Homeland Security officials acknowledged this week that because of a privacy provision in the IRS code, immigration officials will actually have no way of knowing which employers have received "no-match" letters, which have complied and which have not...

EWIC, NILC have a scheme to block DHS no-match push - 08/15/07

From this, we receive word that Laura Reiff of the Essential Worker Immigration Coalition tried to block funding for the recently announced supposed push by the DHS to enforce the Social Security number no-match regulations. They apparently didn't find anyone willing to help them out, so, together with attorney Monica Guizar from the National Immigration Law Center, they're trying a new tack: Among the ideas under consideration are seeking approval of a resolution under the Congressional Review Act, a rarely used tool that allows Congress to review and overrule regulations, or raising the...
